      This is the death of motorsports. It's boring as hell. Driving electric cars are so easy that it really doesn't test a broad range of skills of a driver. You might as well let the computer race with one another.

      In the future a bunch of AI nerds will tweak AI algorithms and will compete with one another.

          Race fans: don't bother watching this drivel. Vice is just mentioned Formula E in passing to push their typical global warming propaganda.

            They don't want to learn about new ways of making renewable climate friendly gasoline.

            All they want is to promote some garbage electric cars that require zero talent to drive.

            This wasn’t even the first ever fully-electric Grand Prix, Formula E started years ago.

                NO look at the internals of the car or the batteries. Waste of time, just preaching the brand

                    Why is race spec radio control cars not scaled up already? I mean my rc car has way more technology then current full sized electric cars. The speed and range doesn't seem to scale up evenly from a electric 1/8 scale car. Imagine full sized losi 8

                        Tesla model s does 155mph, can quick charge the battery to 80% (200 mile range) within 40 minutes, and has a total range of 300 miles. Everything he's stated already exists.

                          and what do you do with the batteries....can i have a serious answer to that Question.......The reason why more lithium ion batteries aren't recycled boils down to simple economics: the scrap value of batteries doesn't amount to much - perhaps $100 per ton, In contrast, the cost of collecting, sorting and shipping used batteries to a recycler exceeds the scrap value, so batteries tend to be thrown away. Unfortunately, the market does not factor in the social cost of disposal, nor does it factor in the fact that recycling metals such as cobalt has a much lower economic and environmental cost than mining raw materials. So we throw them away by the millions.

                                        Personally I love the climate change. I live in a cold town in the center of France. Winter's very cold here so I use my diesel car like there's no tomorrow. I ask you to do the same folks! 🤣🤣🤣

It is Government Responsibility to making BULLSHIT HOAX all over Media and also Killing our planet because of Profit and money !!! I am sure Whole VICE is also a part of this AGENDA .......

                                                                                  • gstate4ever

                                                                                    This is how racing is covered by media outlets that don’t understand it or care about it. However vice is pretty legit and there’s no doubt if they continue to produce content around racing it would get better. I think they’re really just pushing the green energy electric vehicle thing.

                                                                                      I wasn't a fan of the car swaps, but I don't think increasing capacity was the right answer- Imagine if capacity was instead restricted (and car swaps banned) such that the cars needed to swap BATTERY PACKS a couple of times (say, three or four) per race- which would make pit stops and team coordination more of a thing... Like refueling used to be in F1!

                                                                                      I love the pinpoint coreography and teamwork that characterizes F1 and NASCAR pits, and especially endurance racing. Also, battery changes might well drive innovation and provide more of a spectacle... Also, lighter cars would make for more dynamic racing!

                                                                                      Imagine if a team could choose to use a larger (thus heavier) battery pack, thus saving a stop, but at the cost of a heavier (thus slower) car... It would also be a way to avoid contrived reasons (required tire-type changes, in particular)

                                                                                      All IMHO, of course!
